    Accident at work in Thurrock


    Shopping centres are the perfect places to get all the purchases you want under one roof. With new stock arriving all the time in the different stores the act of shopping is more of a hobby than a necessity.

    However for retail workers it is a different story. Retail work is hard and physically exhausting. Working at a fast pace all day everyday takes its toll and any point there could be an accident at work in Thurrock.

    Retail hazards behind the scenes

    Manual handling is a role which all retail staff endure on a daily basis. If the team member are not properly trained on how to lift there could be numerous incidents and even a serious accident at work  in Thurrock.

    In addition to manual handling retail workers also have many health and safety regulations to adhere to. Keeping all corridors clear in the case of an emergency is crucial to the safety of the entire team so if there is negligence from any party on the premises it puts the entire team in danger.

    As well as fire evacuation procedures retail workers also need to know about food safety, first aid and working with computers. All modules for health and safety need to be passed on to all employees regardless of status in order to avoid accidents.

    An accident at work in Thurrock and retail workers

    A benefit of having an accident in a retail environment is that there is a handful of people who could be eye witnesses for the compensation claim. Although at the time of the accident you will only collect the contact details of those who saw the accident at a later date your solicitor or lawyer will be able to use those details in order to get statements.

    CCTV is also normally in place in retail stores so your solicitor will also be able to gain copies of the footage so that can also be used to prove the version of events on the day of the accident.

    If you have had an accident at work in Thurrock whilst in a retail environment you could be entitled to some compensation. Accident Advice Helpline can help you to get started on making your claim and show you the right course of action to take.
